It was cold this morning in Adelaide – at 6.17am the mercury only reached 5.9C. It was just too bad that I couldn’t stay in bed longer as the day was waiting for me. As my bedroom is situated on the southern side of the house, so unfortunately it doesn’t get a lot of sunshine in winter just when we need it the most. As I got up and walked to my study, I saw that the day wasn’t all that bad actually.
A song popped into my head when I walked to the bus stop, warmed up by the morning sun in the crisp morning air: John Denver’s classic Sunshine on My Shoulders. I guess the sun did make me happy. 🙂
So here I am, sitting in my office and looking out through the window – the sky is clear and the sun is out in all of its splendour. It is certainly one glorious autumn day! I’m about to walk out and have my lunch, perhaps I will have a stroll to Rundle Mall rather than taking the tram like I normally do. On top of it, it’s Friday! Yay! It’s been a busy and productive week for me: a new domain and blog, a presentation on Thursday, and lots of work in between.
Thank God I don’t need to get up that early tomorrow as well as I don’t have any driving lesson tomorrow. It was scheduled for Wednesday morning this week but I had to cancel it as I had a lot of work to do. I will have it on Saturday next week at 8.00am instead. This weekend will be a relatively busy one as well – as it will be my turn to lead worship at church, I will have my singing practice tomorrow morning, followed by either a family cellgroup or another trip up to Adelaide Hills to soak in the colours and the glorious autumn view. We shall see. 🙂
If I had a day that I could give you, I’d give to you a day just like today.
If I had a song that I could sing for you, I’d sing a song to make you feel this way
